Solar Victoria Home Rebate Program

Solar Victoria Home Rebate Program.

Victorian Government provides rebates on Solar PV panels and Solar Battery systems to the Victorian residents. The Government provides a rebate of up to $2,225 for solar panel (PV) system installation, for homeowners and rental properties. To further reduce installation costs, householders can apply for an interest-free loan, for an amount equivalent to their rebate amount. The loan is required to be repaid over four years.

Solar PV rebates are closed for July 2019 and will re-open on 1 August 2019. For general enquiries about how the solar PV application affects you, read the Solar PV applications cap FAQ

The Government will also provide 1,000 rebates in 2019-20 of up to $4,838 for a solar battery system. These rebates will be available to people in designated suburbs who have already installed solar panels, but have not already accessed a solar rebate.
